Bentley Batur Convertible: goodbye to the W12 before the arrival of the hybrid V8

It was back in 2022 when we talked about the arrival of the Bentley Batur as the swan song of the legendary W12 mechanics of the Crewe brand. They will have the future with an electrified V8 that will maintain good levels of performance, improving efficiency, but first there is only one surprise. The final fireworks of the twelve cylinders, now for real, is the Bentley Batur Convertible. This is a convertible variant developed by Mulliner, which is even more exclusive and loaded with bespoke personalization details.

Bentley's history with convertibles goes back more than a century back in time, since they have been working on this type of vehicles since 1919. The summit is currently placed by Bacalar, although this specimen does not want to go unnoticed. It is inspired by its design, with a front that highlights the large rectangular grille with a striking rhombus motif. The shapes of the bumper are marked and the headlights are narrow, while the 22 inch wheels They have an exclusive design. Although the Batur Convertible hides much more.

Being a convertible, the rear has had to be redesigned, which begins with an “air bridge” that is behind the seats and reminds us of the barchettas From the past. The hood can be opened or closed electrically in 19 seconds and at speeds of up to 50 km/h at the touch of a button. As it is a Mulliner creation, the user you can configure it to your liking, making use of an endless number of unique materials. It is possible to choose the color and finish of practically all its surfaces, giving an almost infinite level of exclusivity.

What doesn't change is the iconic engine 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 that is hiding under the hood. It will be the last time they mount it on a production vehicle and it slightly improves its numbers compared to the hardtop Batur. The Bentley Batur Convertible boasts a power of 750 HP and 1,000 Nm of torque. This means that over its entire life, the W12 has increased its power by 40% while reducing its consumption by 25%. It is linked to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and has a sports exhaust to round out the acoustic experience.

The Bentley Batur Convertible is limited to 16 units and its price has not yet been revealed, which could exceed two million euros taking into account the rate of the coupe.
